I called it. That game against Chris Tillman would be the most frustrating contest of the series. Can he just regress already and save us the stress?

  • It wasn’t an easy night for the Red Sox. A few missed opportunities & a bunch of line drive outs later, the team ended up saddled with the loss. (Boston loses 3-2 to Baltimore)

I loathe you, Tillman.

    In the eighth inning, with ellsbury on 3rd, Ortiz at the plate, 2 outs, down by one, and the shift is on, why on earth would ortiz not drop a bunt down the third base line and bring in the tying run EASILY? Am I missing something? Was I not paying attention and misread the situation? Please explain. To me, that could have been the difference maker.

    MalenaDinwoodie You’d want a speedy guy to do a suicide squeeze like that. And generally, you don’t bunt with a guy like Ortiz batting – the chances are higher that he’ll get a hit than a successful bunt.
